...Excel 2007 Need to permanently change Normal settings for gridlines
I am using Excel 2007 for the first time and find the gridlines delineating
the cells are so faint as to be nearly indistinguishable. I can go into the
cell formatting and modify the normal style, and it is just the way I want
it. But I can't find a way to make Excel remember this and treat it as the
new definition of the Normal style. I don't want to have to redefine Normal
every time I open a new spreadsheet. Someone please help!
The changes you describe are changing the Border color and NOT gridlines.

If I install Business Portal 2.5 (GP) and point it to our Great Plains
development server with an old Dynamics database, once we decide to
take it live, how do I go back and point it to the live Great Plains
server? Is this something that can only be done during the installation?
Let me preface my response by saying I only have experience with BP 3.0....
In BP 3.0 several tables are created in the Dynamics database to support the
various BP functions. Unless you plan to move or copy those tables you will
probably have to reinstall BP 2.5 in order to have them created.

get the whole text not just the headings. Is it possible
to transfer the table format to a word file?
...lost data when opening excel workbooks ; text import wizard popup
When opening many of my excel files ,which all have the same modification
date, I come across the text import wizard which states that my text in these
files is 'delimited'. All of the files ,including a few word doc.s have had
their data changed to show all " y " with two dots above the letter for as
far as the eye can see. No import or export has been done with the files and
no modifications were done on that date, as far as I know.
Is this a corruption problem or is their some 'fix' that I am overlooking.
Thanks for any ideas.

If you are typing the data into the cell use Alt-Enter between each

I have found one piece of VBA that puts a page number within a cell but it

within the Repeat Rows area I just get a page number of 1 corresponding to

I am having a problem with Excel 2007 files losing all formatting
(merged cells, colors, borders, and data formatting (99% turns into
0.99)) when I open a file on our office server make edits and then
save the new file on the server. Each sheet usually has a mix of
locked and unlocked cells and I unprotect the sheet to make edits.
Also, something is fundamentally changed with the file as its size
doubles or triples. If I reopen the corrupted file and redo any of
the formatting and try to save it none of the new formatting is
retained either. Has anyone else ever experienced a pr...can't change/delete bills and deposits

Outlook provides no way to change that.
